first I want to say hello. I'm 6'6'' tall and the wing is the largest tourer out there. two things will make the fit much better; first is the seat. corbin makes a seat for taller guys, that will move the seat back several inches or i can have the stock seat modified. second; the bars seem a little low but not a problem. can they be raised any? my other option is the BMW K1300GT. any advice?

seat

you can have the seat reworked to remove the drivers back rest that will give you about 4 more inches of rear room. there is a company that does this but i cant remember who-search the web and it will come up

Raising the bars is no big problem, several companies make risers. 1-2" is done easily, if you wanted more you get into wiring issues that can be either costly or not fesible.

The seat is another issue but call the guys at Corbin and talk to them. I used to work in the motorcycle industry and dealt with them several times. If they cant/wont Ill bet they will know who will. If you are planning on riding solo all the time there is a solo seat made for the modified police bikes.
